Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Total time: 40 minutes
Serves: 4
Ingredients
1 tablespoon butter
1 medium onion, small diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound mushrooms, sliced
1 pound lean ground beef
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup beef broth
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup sour cream
12 ounces egg noodles, cooked according to package
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill (optional)
Directions
1. Melt butter in a large saute pan on medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until onions are tender.

3. Add ground beef. Cook until beef is completely brown with no pink. Allow to simmer until all the liquid has evaporated, but do not drain oil.
4. Evenly sprinkle in flour and cook for another 3 minutes. Add beef broth and Worcestershire and mix well. Simmer for 6 to 8 minutes.
4. Turn off heat. Add sour cream and salt and pepper to taste and mix well.
2. Serve over cooked egg noodles, and enjoy!
Pro tip: If you don't have sour cream on hand, you can use Greek yogurt as a substitute.
